This volume is split into 4 chapters, each one covering an episode from the anime. I feel that they shouldn't have done so as it feels rushed. If they would have split each volume into 2 episodes it would have been more appropriatly paced. If you haven't seen the anime you may find yourself flipping back to pages to see if you missed something. It does stay true to the anime very faithfully it's just that everything is not as fleshed out. I'm mostly disapointed that they spent such little time on the witches and their "lairs" or "wards" as they are called in the manga. They are some of my favorite parts in the anime so a little bit of a letdown there. Overall i'm pleased but they could have done a better job with this in my opinion.
This took a little bit to get used to as it's done by a different artist, and it shows. This is not necessarily a bad thing it's just that the unique animation in the show is one of the major draws for me. The eyes in the show are one of my
favorite part of the character designs so I did want to see that in the manga, but I was dissapointed. The characters have less wide and squared jaws, Madoka in particular. Mami's hair is more realistic, and I kinda like it this way a bit better. Homura looks pretty much the same as well a Sayaka. The artist made some changes in the characters weapons, Mami's "Tiro Finale" gun is just her regular rifle, which was pretty dissapointing and Homura's shield is a diamond shape. Their magical girl outfits are pretty much the same, no notable difference as far as I could tell. Kyubey is even more adorable and cute than in the anime which I did like. The witches "wards" are barely seen in the manga, maybe 8 pages total...really disappointing if you ask me. They also seemed to lack alot of detail. This is a different artist rendition of them but I personally didn't like what they did with Charolotte in particular. Charlotte's first form is pretty much the same but her latter is quite different, it looks much less cute and much more evil. I think the stark contrast of the cutesy design with the events that happen to be a big part of what the show is trying to convey so again I was dissapaointed. When not in comparison to the show the art is definitely good, it's just liberties that were taken that I am not too fond of.
If you haven't watched the series and want this to be your first Madoka Magica experience, I would say watch the anime first as it does a much better job of telling the story. If you have seen it and not really into collecting manga then I would give this a pass as well. I would really only get this if you have seen the anime and just want more ways to experience it. It's good but not as good as it could of been, namely with the pacing of the story.
The volume itself is pretty thin, slimmer than most manga. It only has one color page, so it seems to be a bit pricy for what you get.
I liked most of the art. The character designs were very nice. There were several frames that portrayed complex emotions beautifully.
Some scenes, however, weren't very good. There are parts in the anime that feature very surreal environments. The book didn't convey them well, at all. I know that it's a different medium and things have to be modified or cut short (like making a movie out of a book.) But the frames that show these parts wouldn't make sense to someone who has never watched the anime. They probably wouldn't be able to tell what was supposed to be happening, and they didn't make as much impact as I think they should have.
The action wasn't drawn very excitingly, either.
I was really looking forward to this manga because I heard that it had a different ending from the anime. I'll probably buy the other volumes. Unless you're a big fan it's not really worth it. If you haven't watched the animated version, don't even bother.
A few days ago, I saw that it was on sale via Amazon, so I thought, 'Why not.' I had been buying random manga for a while to see if I liked them or not. When I got this one, I immediately read it. The first book is short, only being 144 pages. But ohmuhgosh. Within those few pages, I was on the edge of my seat. I'm stunned with it, and quite frankly, I'm hooked on it. Soon I'll find myself diving into the anime.
I highly recommend this series to anyone. Whether you're into the Magical Girl series or not. Even if it's just picking up the first book and reading it. It's not as pretty as one would think. This series has some dark elements to it, and I think that's partly why I like it so much. It's not as happy as the images seem. There is so much more than meets the eye from the cute pictures and cutesy name.
The story here is just as great as it is in the anime. If you loved the anime, you'll love this.
If you haven't watched Madoka, then all I can do is recommend it. In the spirit of Revolutionary Girl Utena, Madoka seeks to deconstruct the magical girl sub-genre of shoujo manga. A must read for any shoujo fan.
